September 21, 2021

Our community has lost a great leader. Mayor Allen Dowhan passed away late on the afternoon of Tuesday, September 21, 2021, at the Dauphin Hospital. He was 74 years old. He was battling several illnesses for the last few years. Many of us didn’t know the full extent of his health challenges because he was an eternal optimist and always believed that together we could do anything. And under his leadership Council accomplished many great things!

The City of Dauphin extends their sincere condolences to Mayor Allen Dowhan’s family and appreciates his dedication to the community for his near 23 years of service on Council.
